Safety Tips for Driving in
January 3, 2017 -- Winter driving in
North Dakota can be hazardous and scary. In fact, according to the Federal
Highway Administration, more than 116,000 Americans are injured and over 1,300
are killed on snowy, slushy, or icy roads every winter. But planning ahead can
ensure a safe and happy trip is had by all.
The North Dakota Safety Council recommends taking the
following precautions to help you arrive safely at your destination:
- Check the weather before you go.
Wait out any storms if possible. If you must travel, allow plenty of time, and
make sure to share your travel plans with others before you leave.
- Prepare your car for winter. Check
the condition of your vehicle's ignition, brakes, battery, antifreeze, and
- Know what to do to avoid a crash.
Do not use cruise control in wintry conditions, accelerate and decelerate
slowly, look and steer in the direction you want to go, and increase your
- Do not leave home without these: a
full tank of gas, spare tire, shovel, jumper cables, tow rope, first aid kit,
ice scraper, flashlight, reflective triangles or flares, nonperishable food,
candle and matches, and extra blankets, mittens, socks and hats.
- If you do get stranded: stay with
your vehicle, make sure the exhaust pipe isn't blocked, and signal distress with
a brightly colored cloth.
Preparing for a winter road trip can make your trip
safer, reduce your risk of an incident, and help you deal with any potential
weather emergencies. To further prepare yourself for getting behind the wheel,
all while getting an insurance discount, register for a Bismarck's
Adverse Weather Driving Course on February 13!

Building a Better Way
to Keep People Safe from Injury and Death
December 9, 2016 -
The North Dakota Safety Council is building a hands-on safety training campus in
Phase I of the new campus includes a
nearly 5,000 square foot hands-on training lab featuring a rescue tower and
equipment to be utilized during high-level fall protection, confined space
rescue, rope rescue and safe scaffold assembly courses. The facility will also
incorporate distance learning, a 30-person computer lab, equipment simulators
and mobile training units. During Phase II a dirt floor arena and community room
will be added to train on heavy equipment and host community safety events.
This new campus will help us reach more people with a
new and expanded lineup of safety courses taught in a more memorable way.
Check out the progress here.
We need your support to complete this project.
Please contact Kristin Wilson,
